Campaign themes

On his campaign website, Weininger three leading issues he is concerned about. They are:”

  • Control spending - To help government to spend less, he will:
* "Fight for a constitutional amendment that puts limits on government spending.
* Support setting aside any additional revenue in a rainy day fund or for tax relief.
* Never vote for a budget that increases the state’s structural deficit."
  • Create jobs - In order to reduce Red Tape to grow our economy, Weininger says he will:
  • "Oppose costly job killing mandates for small businesses and families.
  • Support legal reforms to reduce the frivolous lawsuits that drive up costs for consumers and harm job creation.
  • Require deadlines for the government permitting process so that government inaction doesn’t slow job creation."
  • Cut taxes - In order to lower taxes, Weininger will:
  • "Support property tax relief.
  • Eliminate taxes on pensions for seniors.
  • Create a sales tax holiday for back-to-school items to help Wisconsin’s parents and students."

His campaign slogan is "Putting People before Politics." He pledges to "Defend our values" by supporting:

  • Second Amendment and hunting rights.
  • Respect all human life as a gift that deserves protection – both born and unborn.
  • Protection of the integrity of our democracy by requiring a photo ID for voting.[3]
