Obama To Women: We've Made Progress On Economic Issues, But Not Yet On Dry Cleaning

While speaking a White House forum on women, President Obama addressed health care and how Obamacare will prevent insurance companies from charging "women more just because they're women."

Obama also touted that women will have greater access to preventive care like "domestic violence screening" and, of course, "contraception at no additional cost."

"Over one million more women are insured because they can now stay on their parents' plan. Later this year, women will receive new access to recommended preventive care, like domestic violence screening and contraception at no additional cost," Obama said to the forum on women and the economy.

"And Soon insurance companies will no longer be able to deny coverage based on pre-existing conditions like breast cancer or charge women more just because they're women.

Obama attempted to tie women being charged more money "just because they're women" to dry cleaning.

"We don't know -- we haven't gotten on the dry cleaning thing yet. I mean, I know that is still, that is still frustrating. I'm sure," Obama said to tepid laughter.
