5 Questions with Tulsi

U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard took a quick break from the campaign trail recently to chat with Being808 about how she stays healthy.

Gabbard, who is running for re-election to represent Hawaii’s second congressional district, told us she likes to mix up her workouts to keep them interesting and always tries to make time for surfing when she’s in the islands.

What does your go-to workout entail?

We did it!

We understand how important our veterans are. Our nation's sons and daughters who stepped forward to serve our country deserve better. They deserve a VA that puts their care and well-being first, before all else. Recent stories have shown how, for far too long, veterans in Hawai'i and across the nation have been waiting months and even years to get their first appointment with a doctor. This is unacceptable, by any standard.

Tell Congress: End Too Big To Fail!

Posted by Tulsi Gabbard on July 28th, 2014


"Too big to fail" banks are even bigger now than ever before. In fact, the five banks that our government decided were too important to fail in 2008 are now 25% larger.

In essence, those risky "too big to fail" investments are even bigger now.

For decades, the Glass-Steagall Act separated risky investment banking from the ordinary banking of everyday Americans. But it was repealed in the late 90's, and now when banks' risky gambles don't pay off, working Americans foot the bill.

The Internet is for everyone

Posted by Tulsi Gabbard on July 11th, 2014

Aloha friends,

The Internet has empowered innovators and enabled advances like we've never seen before. It has leveled the playing field, providing information and opening doors of opportunity to all.

But the Federal Communications Commission wants to set up an Internet fast lane for the highest bidders, and a slow lane for the rest of us. This kind of proposal will disproportionately negatively affect our country's best innovators - who have benefitted most from the empowering principle that all traffic on the Internet should be treated equally.

Pursuit of happiness

Posted by Tulsi Gabbard on July 3rd, 2014

Happy 4th of July!

As we celebrate Independence Day, I hope you'll join me in honoring my fellow veterans and servicemembers - those who've earned and continue to defend our independence and freedom every day.

It's their service and sacrifice to protect life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, that we are so grateful for today, and every day.
