2020 hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren has become the 2020 candidate known for making plans, tackling college tuition, big tech, child care and housing costs. But with the possibility of a GOP-majority in the Senate or a Democratic loss in the House, the question remains: What's the plan for all Warren's plans?

Details: In an interview with Vox's Ezra Klein, Warren outlined her presidency from day 1 and how she would work to prioritize her goals:

Day 1: Warren says she would kick off her presidency by utilizing her executive powers to sign a moratorium on:

  • New drilling
  • Offshore drilling
  • New mining on federal lands or in national parks

Warren said she will also seek a secretary of education who has been a public school teacher and an Environmental Protection Agency head who is "not a coal lobbyist."

First priority: Warren marked her anti-corruption plan as her first legislative priority, which is anticipated to include:

  • A ban on members of Congress trading stocks while in office.
  • A lifelong ban on members of Congress becoming lobbyists when they retire.
  • Requiring every candidate for federal office to put their tax returns online.
  • Requiring the Supreme Court to adhere to a code of ethics and tightening the code of conduct.
"I think going straight up the middle on the corruption plan is the first one. Knock them back, and while they’re all scrambling, then start passing the rest of it,"
— Warren said

Second priority: Warren said she will next take on her proposed wealth tax, set to include:

  • A 2% tax on assets exceeding an individual's first $50 million, and 3% on those exceeding $1 billion.
  • That 2% would go toward a number of Warren's other initiatives including universal child care, universal pre-kindergarten and student-loan debt cancellation.

Yes, but: Warren acknowledged the possibility of filibusters, saying the situation will depend on the majority side in the Senate, but has previously called for the abolition of the mechanism.

The bottom line: Warren says her plans give a clear path of action upon election. She sees her legislative agenda starting now. "As those issues over the next year and a quarter get clearer, sharper, they're issues worth fighting for, and issues where we truly have leadership on it ... Then, the idea is to take that energy from the election and take it straight into Congress."

The Big Ten announced Thursday that it will move all fall sports to a conference-only schedule.

The second jobs apocalypse

This week, United Airlines warned 36,000 U.S. employees their jobs were at risk, Walgreens cut more than 4,000 jobs, Wells Fargo announced it was preparing thousands of terminations this year, and Levi's axed 700 jobs due to falling sales.

Why it matters: We have entered round two of the jobs apocalypse. Those announcements followed similar ones from the Hilton, Hyatt, Marriott and Choice hotels, which all have announced thousands of job cuts, and the bankruptcies of more major U.S. companies like 24 Hour Fitness, Brooks Brothers and Chuck E. Cheese in recent days.
