(CNSNews.com) - Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg attacked Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont in the Democratic presidential debate on Wednesday night by calling Sanders “the best known socialist in America” and pointing out that Sanders has “three houses.”

Sanders responded by explaining it is okay for him to own three houses.

Here is a transcript of the exchange:

Michael Bloomberg: What a wonderful country we have. The best known socialist in the country happens to be a millionaire with three houses. What did I miss here?

Bernie Sanders: Well, you`ll miss that I work in Washington, house one.

Bloomberg: That’s the first problem.

Sanders: Live in Burlington, house two.

Bloomberg: That’s good.

Sanders: And like thousands of other Vermonters, I do have a summer camp. Forgive me for that. Where is your home? Which tax haven do you have your home?

Bloomberg: New York City, thank you very much, and I pay all my taxes. And I`m happy to do it because I get something for it.
