Let's Get Political, Political . . .

Early last year I told you about the Personal Health Investment Today (PHIT) Act. And unfortunately, it has not been approved so we're not yet allowed to pay for our health club dues, physical fitness programs, certain exercise equipment, and children’s sports league fees with pretax dollars.

Now HealthClubs.com has made the process of bringing this act to the attention of US senators and representatives very, very easy. There's a prewritten letter that you can copy and paste (or write your own letter). The site will then send out your correspondence to your state's officials.

I don't know about you, but I'd love to be able to use $1,000 pretax dollars a year towards my fitness and health. If nothing else it shows that my country, the one where some are worried about having a president that is too fit, is truly as concerned about my health as all the reports claim.

I just sent a letter to my congresswomen and representative, did you?
