house Bill H.R. 2669

Should Telemarketers Be Banned From "Spoofing" Their Identity in Text Messages?

Argument in favor

Companies should not be allowed to trick people into thinking they are offering safe, legitimate services. This is already illegal; it’s time to update the regulations to include the latest technologies.

Yes, telemarketing calls should be transparent. I would like this transparency to likewise be apply to the House. Don't you just hate finding out that bill you supported had a NON-Transparent amendment added prior to passage? So let's make transparency a two way street. Remember, an answering devise can filter out non-transparent phone calls

People who spoof like this prey on the unexpecting (which is often the elderly), and can waste thousands of dollars. It's already illegal to scam people, and this isn't a legitimate way to do business so it should be stopped.

Of course. Why should we enable people to lie to us?

Argument opposed

The government shouldn’t interfere with companies’ methods for reaching possible customers. Everyone should have a right to hide their identity — no matter their reason for doing so.

Grace Meng (D-NY), why don't you read the Constitution?! And try putting your brain to work solving more important problems than telemarketers! Man! Uncle Sam needs to get help for "his" Nanny State addiction! Most of us grown ups are capable of solving the little problems that life throws at us without the federal government's help. Those who can't need to practice their problem solving skills, instead of crying to Congress for help! Of Note: The FCC accepts complaints from people who feel they have been wrongfully spoofed.

It's a useless bill. Focus on more important matters.
