Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-VT, continued to defend democratic socialism, arguing that Americans "would be pleased to pay more taxes" if their policies were implemented.

"
He continued," So there is a compromise, but in the end I think most people will believe that they will feel better if their children have educational opportunities without expenses, if they have a human right to health care, if they have affordable housing, if they are decent. I think most Americans will understand that this is a good deal. "
