This Sunday on State of the Union...

President Obama's rough week as he attempts to put Americans back to work. After much criticism of his jobs plan from both sides of the aisle-can it pass Congress, and will it boost the economy? We’ll ask Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Illinois) and Republican Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina).

Plus, former Congressional Budget Office directors Alice Rivlin and Douglas Holtz-Eakin discuss the impact the jobs plan will have on the troubling economy, as well as the latest recession worries.

Then, we switch gears and talk about the President's even more challenging week ahead as he travels to New York for the U.N.'s General Assembly. How will the U.S. relations with Israel and the world be impacted as Palestine vows for statehood from the UN? Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Michael Oren and Palestinian Chief Representative to the U.S. Maen Areikat talk about Palestine's quest for more international recognition.

Be sure to watch-it's going to be must-see-television.

CNN's State of the Union airs Sundays at 9am/12pm ET.
