Shrink the Government is a blog that is part of The James Madison Project to help reframe the national debates on healthcare and the national debt and find solutions that work for Americans. The blog will use a psychological framework, placing a spotlight on the various stakeholders involved in the healthcare environment. Where possible, the blog will also attempt to reframe issues into challenges that can be debated, using facts that are verifiable to find effective solutions. The content will address timely issues as well as more conceptual topics. We invite anyone who shares our vision and mission to take part in suggesting topics, posing questions, writing posts, and most importantly, contributing to the conversation. With so much at stake for our nation, it’s time to stop kvetching and start acting.
