13. they aren't really blaming those groups

that's just hype from the article.

The abortion restrictions? They always favored that, even a complete ban if the SCOTUS wouldn't slap it down. Those have nothing to do with the budget problems.

The LGBT protections? Well that was a nice smoke screen. Once he did that, the media stopped talking about the budget for about a month.

You could say the same about the welfare restrictions on both counts - a long term conservative goal AND a nice media distraction from other issues.

Also, the article flat contradicted itself. First it said this "prevents welfare recipients from spending government-provided funds on things poor people do not spend their money on, such as cruise ships ..." then it calls it "burdens and restrictions". Well, how is it either a burden or a restriction if the poor people are NOT spending their money on it anyway? They can't have it both ways.
