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.
