Opinion: Elected officials should do something to stop unwanted sales calls
03082018 CELLOPHNE

There is little in my life today that is as irritating and frustrating as the constant and unrelenting series of unwanted sales and solicitation telephone calls received on my home telephone and on my cellphone. 

Given the extraordinary technology available today, there is no logical reason that these intrusions cannot be stopped. While there are confusing and conflicting procedures for blocking unwanted calls, they fall far short of being effective. 

In reality, our elected officials, especially those at the state and federal levels, have the authority and the capability to enact legislation that could bring a halt to this intrusive practice. 

Where are our elected officials on this matter? Is there anyone out there who understands their reluctance to act in behalf of the public?
