If you don’t have that e-mail, no worries: Just click here to go to the Realtor Action Center.

Of course, an even better thing to do is call your representative and tell the assistant who answers the phone "I’m a constituent of Representative Jones, and I just want to register my opinion on an issue. Please tell her I hope she doesn’t touch the mortgage interest deduction." Period; no spiel required. (You might be asked for your name and address to verify you’re in her district.)

OK, stop reading and watching. Go help your business.
