Jon Halsey: Political parties pushback to keep robocalls

Jon Halsey writes:
The FCC is actively working on stopping Robocalls. The solutions are proving to be incredibly complex, especially with newer and increasingly intricate technologies. Most solutions point to local phone companies being incentivized to install hardware and software combinations to stop the problem. To date, there is no foolproof solution. Compounding the problem is push back from the political parties who see Robocalls as vital to their interests both for poll canvassing as well as fund raising. - Jon Halsey, Knifley
