(AP) President Barack Obama's health care law has survived the Supreme Court, a battle for the White House and budget brinkmanship. Now the ultimate test: the verdict of the American people.

Though a government shutdown would dampen plans to celebrate, the new health insurance markets will open Tuesday around the country.

Those markets, and other main parts of "Obamacare," will be going live as scheduled, glitches and all.

The biggest expansion of society's safety net since Medicare will be in the hands of consumers, who'll want to know if they can afford the premiums, if the coverage will be solid and if new federal and state websites will really demystify shopping for health insurance.

Expect the rollout to get off to a slow start, with some bumps.
