The Internet is a weird place.
On Thursday night, a BuzzFeed post of a photo of a dress from Tumblr -- following so far? -- went viral because people can't seem to agree if it's white and gold or blue and black. (The post had more than 11.8 million views as of this posting.)
Thankfully, members of Congress and others have begun to weigh in on this great national debate. Their votes on the colors are below. (Side note: The Department of Homeland Security is set to run out of money by midnight tomorrow night.) We'll keep you updated as more information becomes available.
Just asked my Legislative Director at 10:30 pm to draft a House resolution tomorrow about the dress being black and blue. AMA.

Little late to this but just took a look and it's definitely white and gold

I know three things: 1) the ACA works; 2) climate change is real; 2) that dress is gold and white.
