Herman Cain promises he wouldn’t sign any bill over three pages long

From the LA Times Blog:

Herman Cain has discovered a way to stand out from all the other Republicans running for president.

The former president and chief executive of Godfather’s Pizza wants to make an offer to Congress that it can’t refuse. Unfortunately, it may be an offer so idealistic that it could have Cain swimming with the proverbial fishes — politically speaking.

Cain wants to stop lawmakers from passing bills that are over three pages long. Talk about small government.

“Don’t try to pass a 2,700-page bill,” Cain said to a responsive audience in Pella, Iowa, on Monday.

“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,” Cain said.
