Sen. Bernie Sanders believes "a lot" of Americans would be "delighted" to pay more taxes.

"In many countries in Europe - Germany, for one, you go to college and the cost of college is zero. I think in Finland, they actually pay you to go to college," Sanders told CNN on Wednesday.

"In most countries around the world the level of income and wealth inequality, which in the United States today, is worse than in any time since the 1920s with three families owning more wealth than the bottom half of America. That level of income and wealth inequality is much less severe than it is right here in the United States," Sanders said.

CNN's Anderson Cooper asked. "But as you know, the taxes in many of those countries are much higher than they are – the individual and personal tax is much higher than they are in the United States."

"Yeah, but I suspect a lot of people in the country would be delighted to pay more in taxes if they had comprehensive health care, as a human right," Sanders replied.

Delighted to pay more in taxes? Really?
