Editor's Note, 3/27/12: Melissa finished this post on her trip to the White House Affordable Care Act roundtable last week with a call for you to weigh in and share your story. As the Supreme Court hears arguments on the constitutionality of various aspects of the act this week, we want to keep the BlogHer roundtable going. What's your insurance situation? How do you feel about the legislation? Share your story in the comments below. -- Julie
Today, I attended a small roundtable discussion with 11 other women in the Roosevelt room at the White House. We talked about the Affordable Care Act and how it is playing out in the actual lives of women. Leading the discussion were Deputy Chief of Staff, Nancy-Ann DeParle, and Deputy Assistant to the President for Health Policy, Jeanne Lambrew.
