bad news: per AAAC meeting earlier, there is not enough $ to actually pay for all these lovely toys, so something will have to give, somewhere.
Someone at a high enough pay grade to take the blame will decide whether to cut from the bottom or give everybody a haircut.
Early tealeaf readings are haircuts all around.

    My take of the senior review website is that the official NASA response authorizes all missions for extensions; those decisions do indeed take into account the budget. The response notes which missions have had additions or reductions to their budgets. So no missions will be turned off.
