Boston, Massachusetts (CNN) - President Barack Obama plays the role of fundraiser-in-chief Monday evening, helping the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee raise an estimated $1 million. The president headlines a DCCC fundraiser at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Among those joining Obama at the event are House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Steve Israel, the DCCC chairman. Tickets for the event range from $5,000 per person for dinner to $50,000 per couple for dinner, a photo line, and a VIP reception. A source with knowledge of the event says around $1 million will raised at the dinner.

Republicans are criticizing the event, which is the first major DCCC fundraiser headlined by the president this election cycle. "Instead of taking charge of fixing the fiscal crisis they created, President Obama seems more interested in filling the coffers of his vulnerable Democrat allies," says National Republican Campaign Committee communications director Paul Lindsay, in an email statement.

Lindsay says that instead of dealing with the budget deficit, Democratic "party leaders are instead making it clear they are more interested in preserving their legacy of job-crushing policies and returning Nancy Pelosi to the Speaker's chair."

The DCCC defends the and event criticizes House Republicans.

The price was down to $500 because of lack of interest.

They would have to pay me 1 million just to enter the door, and 2 million to eat the food. Guess what I would not even vote for the guy. Take pictures of all the guys to find out whose is there and boycott their businesses.

Did The Won make a brief, incoherent speech and then make an excuse about having to walk the dog like he did the last time he was up that way?

$50,000 gets you a half-hour with Obama in the back of a limo. Bring your own pipe.
