Cut Shuttle - Gut Station

New NASA Plans Would Dramatically Limit Shuttle Flights And Halt Space Station Assembly, SpaceRef

"Two alternate approaches are currently under serious consideration - in real time - at NASA. One, the so-called "Serial Processing" option would reduce the shuttle flight rate to 2 missions per year, cut the workforce, stop building the ISS, and live with the consequences. The other approach would fuse current Space Shuttle, ISS, and Exploration development closely together such that existing capabilities could support emerging ones - all this serving to allow ISS assembly to continue further."
