For anyone who really wants to know the ins and outs of the GPS system, I suggest heading over to https://www.gps.gov/ to learn the real scoop as there's some mis-info in this thread.

If GPS is going to be cut off months at a time, why would the FAA decommission VOR's? Is there another motive? With the FAA emphasis being on safety, these actions appear to be counterproductive. Maybe I'm missing something here.

Not all of them are being decommissioned. There's the VOR MON.
