The House of Representatives is set to announce that they will give staffers free Peloton memberships, courtesy of taxpayer dollars.
According to a draft email obtained by Fox News from the office of the Chief Administrative Officer, the “premier employee benefit,” which will also be made available to all Capitol Police, will provide staffers with both Peloton All-Access and a Peloton App membership for free.
Beginning May 18th, the government contract with Peloton will be offered to the approximately 10,000 people on staff and around 2,300 Capitol Police officers.
A source familiar with the matter told Fox News that the contract cost is a $10,000 upfront payment to Peloton, plus an extra $10 monthly charge for each staffer or officer that uses the benefit.
To put it in perspective, a regular All-Access Peloton membership costs $39 per month and a Peloton App Membership costs $12.99 per month.
The email also told the staffers and officers they would "have access to thousands of live and on-demand classes, across multiple disciplines, that are available for streaming across multiple devices and require no purchase of Peloton equipment."
