Amy Klobuchar releases list of 136 things she would do in first 100 days as president

She has released a list of 136 moves she would make from the White House.

Whatever your political leanings, you can never accuse Amy Klobuchar of being underprepared, and she's showing the rest of America this on Tuesday morning.

The Minnesota senator has released a list of things she would do within her first 100 days should she be elected president in 2020.

She has a lot of plans, 136 of them to be precise, with Klobuchar saying she would use executive action to "immediately deliver on her ambitious, optimistic agenda that will build a safer world, a stronger democracy, and a fairer economy while taking much-needed action on health care, climate change, and immigration."

"After four years of Donald Trump, a new President can’t wait for a bunch of congressional hearings to act," said Sen. Klobuchar.

"The urgent problems our country is facing require immediate action. That’s why in my first 100 days as President I will enact an ambitious, optimistic agenda to improve our health care, combat climate change, pursue economic justice and shared prosperity, and build a stronger democracy and safer world."

You can see the full list here, but we've picked out a few of the plans she would look to enact: 

– Have the U.S. rejoin the Paris Climate Agreement on "Day One."

– Suspend the federal government's efforts to eliminate Affordable Care Act protections for pre-existing conditions.

– Grant a waiver to allow Americans to import prescription drugs from Canada.

– Undertake an "aggressive" retrospective review of corporate mergers.

– Raise the minimum wage for federal contractors to $15-an-hour.

– Jumpstart "comprehensive immigration reform" including a pathway to citizenship, the DREAM Act and border security, and stop efforts to deport DREAMers.

– Prevent people who have abused dating partners from buying or owning firearms

– Bring back fuel-economy standards that were loosened under the Trump administration.

– Introduce "sweeping legislation" to combat climate change, building on the "framework of the Green New Deal" that includes investments in green jobs, tougher building codes, greener transportation and appliance standards.
