Stop Congress From Allowing Companies To Robocall Your Cell Phone !

Just recently congress introduced the "Mobile Informational Call Act" in which large companies, financial services, and debt collection agencies want to exempt themselves from the existing law that bans robocalls to cell phones.

"Since '91, it's been illegal for telemarketers to use autodialers and other robot-like devices to call your cellphone. Last week, a bill was introduced to change that. While in the past email hoaxes have gone around saying that your cellphone could be opened up to telemarketers, HR 3035 seeks to let businesses contact your cellphone "for informational purposes."  (Consumerist)

This should not pass.
