Lots of discussion and submissions BUT no solution
Most, if not all, of the submissions do not address all of the requirements. Those that use block lists fail sqqince the robocallers can easily change their spoofed caller ID with every call. Those that only accept calls from white lists fail since they have no method to accept emergency calls from unknown phone numbers. Those that require the caller to answer a challenge question fail since they block emergency reverse 911 calls.
The real solution requires the telcos to modify their infrastructure to enable the accurate identification of the offenders and follow this with strict enforcement of existing do not call laws where the offenders are severly punished and pay for their crimes.
Kudos to the FTC for finally tracking down and prosecuting "Rachel from Cardholder Services". These calls have finally stopped.
