In a recent speech, GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain said that Congress should be working diligently to engage the American people. The former chief executive of Godfather‘s Pizza goes on to say that lawmakers shouldn’t be passing 2,700-page bills and he quips, “That’s why I am only going to allow small bills — three pages.” Was he being serious?

ThinkProgress and The Los Angeles Times both ran blog posts covering Cain’s statement, but neither mentioned the fact that he was likely joking around with the audience when he made his small bill pledge. Here is a text version of his statements:

Engage the people. 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?
