The furloughs are not happening unless congress let's the "sequester" happen on March 1st. Sequester is the across the board cuts to government spending that no one in congress likes, especially the cuts to department of defense. If congress does NOT punt on the sequester (they always punt) then workers will be put on furloughs.
What is likely to happen is they either fully punt or they move the defense cuts to other parts of the government. Sad but true.
BTW - I work for the Navy and know this as fact otherwise I would have been put on furlough....
