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."

Quotes are from Vox's transcript of the interview, which was noted as lightly edited for clarity.

The U.S. will sanction 7 senior Russian officials over the poisoning and jailing of opposition leader Alexey Navalny, senior administration officials told reporters on Tuesday.

Why it matters: The sanctions represent the first penalties the U.S. has imposed on Kremlin-linked officials since President Biden took office and pledged to confront Russian aggression.

The House will vote on two immigration bills next week, including one to protect undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said Tuesday on a call with the Democratic caucus.

Why it matters: This is likely the only realistic shot the Biden administration has at this point to pass immigration reform.

A briefing scheduled for President Biden this afternoon outlines the need for 20,000 beds to shelter an expected crush of child migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, Axios has learned.

Why it matters: The rapid influx of unaccompanied children is building into the administration's first new crisis. A presentation created by the Domestic Policy Council spells out the dimensions with nearly 40 slides full of charts and details.
