Air Force Learning to Live With Sequester

The Hill reports that “The Air Force is planning for a financial future where the across-the-board defense cuts under sequestration take effect over the next decade.”

“That said…the Air Force simply cannot afford to abandon plans to modernize its fighter and bomber fleet… But protecting modernization means Air Force units and combat squadrons will not have the money to train for future wars.”

“Pentagon is now attempting to persuade lawmakers to work with the department to cope with the effects of sequestration, rather than force Congress to come up with an alternative to the budget cuts.”
