Buried in the massive budget compromise was a provision authorizing perhaps the one thing that no one -- no matter their party or philosophy -- wants: robocalls to cell phones. The HANG UP Act will repeal that before it takes effect: Support it now! It is currently illegal for debt collectors to robocall your cell phones without permission.
Congress and the President have given them the nod to go ahead legally unless the HANG UP Act passes quickly
A sneak provision in the federal budget rushed through Congress this week (no amendments allowed) would change that -- but lawmakers are already feeling your wrath and have filed a separate bill to repeal the provision before it takes effect.
Tell your lawmakers to support the HANG UP Act!
