CELLPHONE USERS BEWARE!!! The Mobile Informational Call Act of 2011 (H.R. 3035) would allow businesses to use "robocalling" to call ALL CELLPHONE NUMBERS and leave recorded messages 24 hours a day! Currently these types of calls are outlawed! Supporters say that this could be used to remind patients about a doctors appointment or to let airlines inform you of a flight delay. However, the major endorsing organizations are: the U. S. Chamber of Commerce, the American Bankers Association, the Consumer Bankers Association and the Mortgage Bankers Association. Basically, this bill will allow telemarketers, bill collectors or any business to call your cellphone 24 /7! Every cellphone will be flooded with these UNWANTED CALLS! Unless your plan allows for free unlimited incoming calls, you wil be paying for all of these calls. U.S. Rep. Lee Terry [R-NE2] introduced this bill! I'll bet those banking companies that are endorsing this are some of Terry's major campaign contributors. Rep. Terry definitely IS NOT THINKING OR CARING ABOUT THE CONSUMERS! Let's give Rep. Terry a taste of his own medicine by calling his office in Washington (202)225-4155 or his Omaha office (402)397-9944 and start leaving messages 24 hours a day! If his voice mail gets full keep trying! The point is to let him know how inconvenient it would be if this legislation passes. If you don't make any other calls for political concerns or causes this year, PLEASE CALL REP. TERRY! and let him know to forgot about H.R. 3035 The Mobile Informational Call Act of 2011.
