Herman Cain open to bills four pages and longer

After promising earlier this week not to sign any bills more than three pages long, Herman Cain takes a step back toward political reality in a CBS interview:

“It was an exaggeration to drive home a point: I want short bills,” he said. “…When they write a bill, I want them to address the particular topic that it is supposed to address. Because as you know, they have this habit in Washington DC of throwing everything including the kitchen sink in there in order to try to get it passed along with something that the other side might want. …

“Yes they are going to be longer than three pages,” he said. “But they are not going to be 2,700 pages that nobody read.”
