Rep. Jason Chaffetz, a newly minted freshman from Utah, brought his laid back, candid style to Heritage at Tuesday’s blogger briefing [1]. Chaffetz won his seat using social media and demanding fiscal discipline from Washington.

We have to adhere to the Constitution, to fiscal discipline, to limited government, accountability and strong national defense. We weren’t actually executing on those. More and more you started asking people about fiscal responsibility and they wouldn’t necessarily associate Republicans directly with that issue. It’s because they had been fiscally irresponsible on that issue in my opinion, and I argued to the voters of Utah: If you want a different result, you’re going to have to elect different people.
