Pentagon will plan for possible carrier cut in 2015

The Pentagon will take steps next year to retire an aircraft carrier in case Congress does not lift sequestration by 2016.
The Pentagon recently released a preview of its defense budget request for 2015, which includes cuts to the size of the Army and Marine Corps, laying up 11 Navy cruisers, cutting Air Force A-10 and U-2 fleets. Defense leaders say those reductions will get worse if sequestration is not relieved for 2016.
