It doesn’t come as much of a shock that all of the Republican likely presidential contenders dislike Obamacare. But while they can all agree that Obama’s health care law isn’t the right approach, they don’t all agree on what is.

National Journal has identified three areas of debate: the tax treatment of insurance, what kind of a safety net is included for low-income people or those with extensive medical needs, and provisions regarding small businesses providing coverage for employees. The contender’s backgrounds and past policy proposals shed light on where the candidates differ on health care.
