Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain promised Tuesday that as president, he wouldn’t sign any bill longer than three pages.
A video provided by Think Progress showed Cain speaking to a receptive audience at the Family Leader Presidential Lecture Series in Pella, Iowa.
“Engage the people,” Cain said. “Don’t try to pass a 2,700 page bill — and even they didn’t read it! You and I didn’t have time to read it. We’re too busy trying to live — send our kids to school. That’s why I am only going to allow small bills — three pages. You’ll have time to read that one over the dinner table. What does Herman Cain, President Cain talking about in this particular bill?”
