Congress is down with T-Swift, and is hoping you are, too. (In fact, their fundraising efforts are counting on it.) Some members of congress are offering tickets to see the Swift concert alongside them in July for a couple thousand a pop, according to the Washington Post (opens in new tab).

For $2,500, you can enjoy the show with Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis.), Rep. Lois Frankel (D-Fla.) or Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-Ill.). If you're not into supporting Democrats, or are just looking for a deal, you can go ahead and join Rep. Steve Stivers (R-Ohio) in his suite. His tickets are going for $1,500—and for $2,500 you can bring a friend.

I'm Sam, the senior editor at MarieClaire.com. I love shining a light on awesome people doing things that matter, cool products and hacks for everyday life, and advice you'll actually use. I'm pretty much always looking for the perfect GIF for any situation. When I'm not trolling the internet, I can be found dancing like a weirdo or napping like it's my job. Right now, I'm probably eating or drinking something filled with sugar or booze. (Sorry, mom.)
