Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), with the hashtag, #SocialismTakesCapitalismCreates, on February 20.

"It's not to say we're going to force everybody to go vegan, or anything insane like that", she said. "And so it's not to say you get rid of agriculture, it's not to say we're gonna force everybody to go vegan or anything insane like that". "But, it's to say, listen, we got to address factory farming", Ocasio-Cortez added. Maybe we shouldn't be eating a hamburger for breakfast, lunch, and dinner ...
