An article,today, on msn money shows how the politicians care about us unemployed. "Congress may ban loud commercials, legislation may come to a house vote as early as this week". Can you imagine this happening in these terrible times for out of work people. People are losing their homes, they can't afford food for their family, medical expenses are sky-high BUT don't worry because we will not have to listen to loud commercials anymore. WHO CARES !!! If you don't have a place to live then i guess you don't have a tv to watch so this great law doesn't help you at all.
Sorry for this rant but I can't believe this so-called "educated" Congress has nothing else to worry about than loud tv. while the people of this country are homeless, sick and hungry.

I never knew loud commercials were a problem. Maybe the extra wattage is rising our carbon footprint which might flood Al Gore's coastal 22 bedroom estate.

Loud commercials are annoying and are exactly the type of thing that is best dealt with through legislation rather than thru the mechanisms of the market.

Maybe congress is beginning to realize that enough unemployment pay-outs have been given at this point, and it is time for people to shift down to jobs they are overqualified for and be happy that they have any work, at all.
