- * "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."

- "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."

- Second Amendment and hunting rights.
- Respect all human life as a gift that deserves protection – both born and unborn.
