We show that after the election of Barack Obama congressional Republicans decreased their credit claiming rate and instead criticized government expenditures. Abstract Objective In health, accountability has since long been acknowledged as a central issue, but it remains an elusive concept. This literature provides insights into how well legislators adopt constituent preferences, but is a less useful framework for studying representation around spending. As such, it is a relevant approach for the broader study on accountability in local health systems, given the heterogeneous literature on accountability. This should be supported by efforts to build accountability capability and fairness in process and results.

We also find, however, that the availability of party labels shapes the degree to which voters categorize candidates based on their race and ethnicity. Using a series of experiments, we show that constituents evaluate the actions that legislators report performing and are responsive to who receives the funding. There was a time when legislation that had been formulated after months of civil service and ministerial deliberation was sent to the House of Commons which would pore over it, shape it, send it back, get it back, look at it again — and improve it some more. We embed the experiments in surveys but also use more realistic settings to replicate how constituents may actually encounter credit claiming messages.

Abstract: Over the past 45 years, 15 American states have held constitutional conventions to confront the pressing concerns of the day. Because legislators are entrepreneurial and anticipate constituents' reactions, constituents are able to exercise indirect control over their legislator, making it possible for legislators to be responsive to their constituents and creating conditions for democratic accountability. But as well as cutting the size of parliament, we've got to reform it too. Methodologically, the meta-narrative review is most appropriate in such cases, as it allows one to map concepts and definitions across research traditions, to trace the evolution over time and to identify any overarching conceptual approaches. Organizations which fail to win the confidence of people gradually get sidelined.
