The Obama Administration promised that HealthCare.gov will begin to work by this weekend, but could the website be the least of the Affordable Care Act’s problems? In the latest twist, the Supreme Court accepted an appeal concerning mandated contraception coverage, and the site will be unable to enroll small businesses online for another year, making the new deadline November 2014… in other words, AFTER the midterm elections. Former Vermont Governor Howard Dean and Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum are our guests.

Get your daily scoop of what State of the Union is watching today, November 29, 2013.
1. The moment of truth. With the administration-imposed November 30th deadline to fix the troubled Obamacare website one day away, questions abound.

The president and officials in charges of Healthcare.gov say they expect the "vast majority" of people who go to the site to have a much better experience than the crashes and delays experienced during its launch last month. Is this Obamacare's sink or swim moment? Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum and former Vermont governor and Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean debate the health care law's fate this Sunday on State of the Union.
