Congress support for activity tax break via PHIT Act reaches new heights 

105 co-sponsors for Activity Tax Break to help lower consumer costs 

Congress may be struggling with broad healthcare reform but Republicans and Democrats agree on incentivizing activity. The Personal Health Investment Today (PHIT) Act would allow consumers to pay for activity expenses using funds in pre-tax medical accounts (Health Savings Accounts and Flexible Savings Accounts). 

We cannot medicate ourselves to health, it requires a commitment of time and money to live active, healthy lifestyles. Prevention and wellness our key to the future of our healthcare system but cost is a barrier to active lifestyles that did not exist in previous generations. The PHIT Act will lower cost to consumers to increase activity in America. 

At a time when the parties do not agree on healthcare or taxes, the PHIT Act is an outlier with 58 Democrats and 47 Republicans co-sponsoring this healthcare-related tax incentive. Congress must improve the current healthcare system or face the consequences back home. With the Republican repeal effort having failed, bi-partisan reform is the only path forward and the PHIT Act is one of the most bi-partisan of them all. 

Help keep the pressure on Congress. Spread the word to #passPHIT!
