A political group I am in were talking about another attempt to intro tax credit for people to join gyms. Would you be up for a $500 (hypothetical amount) credit to join a the YMCA, or another gym?It is proven that exercise reduces type II diabetes, heart disease, and cholesterol. This could lower the nations dependency on certain prescription drugs.
If you received a tax credit when you filed each year for belonging to the gym, would you be more likely to join your local YMCA, health club, etc?
Adult Fitness Tax Credits have been introduced before, mainly on the state level. But today, people are more health concious. Aren't tey?
This could aid in stimulating the economy, increase the job outlook for fitness professionals, and allow people access to affordable exercise solutions. It been done in Canada and elsewhere.

That's ok. We are trying to come up with other Preventive/proactive solutions to offset the costs of Universal Health care. It's more of a brain teaser, I think.
6 in one, half dozen in another. But it is worth the debate, I think.

grly, is this your question? It's a good one, and I am going to have to think about it for a while. I understand that concept that it will offset the cost of UHC (which I don't think is doable). Just trying to think of what sort of impact it would make on the bottom line. Be back later.
