What U.S. presidential candidates have preferable positions on healthcare?

What is really going on here ? In particular, which candidates are secretly going to give all the money to the insurance companies?

Preferable to whom? One man's universal healthcare is another's nanny state nightmare. This question would better be worded as 'Where can I find a comprehensive analysis of each candidate's stand on healthcare and the insurance industry'.

The American College of Physicians has benchmarks that it recommends for evaluating a candidate's stance on healthcare, and then presents a breakdown on who stands where. The Kaiser Family Foundation also has a comparison engine. (I found these via Science Friday's recent broadcast on health care policy.)

ontheissues.org is a great resource for questions like this.

This is a side-by-side of the candidates' health care proposals.
