Making Robo Calls Illegal

Incoming Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says that one of the first ten bills he wants the new Senate to pass is a bill making the annoying election RoboCalls illegal. I think that is a great way to start the next session of Congress! :)

One reason I am glad I have a cell phone and no landline...no "robocalls". I can safely say I did not receive a single "robocall" this political year.

Oh come on now...

How about a little sense of humor here. I enjoyed telling my fiance that Sheryl Crow left a message on the answering machine!

I too enjoyed getting a call from Sheryl Crow. How about an exemption for Sheryl?

I didn't get a phone call from Sheryl Crow OR Michael Steele.

I'm ticked. I'll get a landline before the next election.

If I got any robocalls on my unpublished number, they didn't leave a message.
I expect there will be a free speech problem with totally eliminating such calls, but they might be able to enact something that effectively eliminates them by prohibiting them to anyone on a list who says in advance that they don't want to get them. That seems reasonable enough.
