During the CNN Democratic Presidential Town Hall Monday night, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said that, if elected to the Oval Office, his administration will undoubtedly raise taxes to fund his liberal policy initiatives.

“We will raise taxes. Yes, we will,” he told the audience at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa.

Sanders justified his remarks by saying that he would eliminate private health insurance premiums to level out the burden of higher taxes on the American people.  

“We may raise taxes, but we are also going to eliminate private health insurance premiums for individuals and for businesses,” he said.

Listen to his remarks in the short video clip below. 

Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul took to Twitter to criticize Sanders' logic.
