Tulsi Gabbard on Technology

Democratic Presidential Challenger; HI Rep.


Break up tech giants like Facebook, Google, & Amazon

Gabbard on Tech Competition & Antitrust: Break them up.

FOUR CANDIDATES HAVE SIMILAR VIEWS: Bill de Blasio; Bernie Sanders; Elizabeth Warren; Marianne Williamson.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren laid down a marker by calling for Facebook, Google, Amazon and Apple to be broken apart, saying that they have "bulldozed competition." Warren said the companies should be designated as "platform utilities" and prohibited from both owning a platform and competing on it (think Amazon selling its own goods or Google including its own products in search results). Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has backed Warren's proposal and pledged to introduce legislation along those lines in the House.

Warren's proposal would have regulators seek to unwind blockbuster mergers like Facebook's acquisitions of WhatsApp and Instagram; Amazon's purchases of Whole Foods and Zappos; and Google's deals for Waze, Nest and DoubleClick. Few other Democratic candidates have gone as far as to call for reversing specific deals.

Pay for infrastructure by winding down wars

Tulsi Gabbard on Transportation: Pay for infrastructure by winding down spending on wars and overseas military conflicts.

So far, Tulsi Gabbard is the only candidate suggesting removing American military might--and the spending it requires-- from overseas conflicts and redirecting that money to infrastructure. But she's not the first to make such a suggestion; for much of former President Barack Obama's presidency, he suggested the same thing, which Congress never endorsed.
