Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists debate whether the Iranian nuclear deal is a “game changer” or a “very bad idea.” Also, the Supreme Court agrees to hear more arguments against Obamacare. This time the justices consider whether businesses can use religious objections to avoid birth control for employees.

Additionally, the show’s panelists give thanks for Sarah Hale, a journalist who made it her crusade to establish Thanksgiving as a national holiday, for Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9. and for William F. Buckley’s book “Gratitude.”

Scheer is joined by Rich Lowry of the National Review and host Matt Miller.
