Citizens sound off on federal budget cuts

Sequestration: some can barely even say it, let alone understand it.

"Its a financial lexicon deals with 1.2 trillion reductions in budgets over 10." 

Sequester or federal budget cuts are expected to happen throughout the United States. So what does this mean for you? Well, this $85 billion cut in funding will hit food inspections, national parks, prisons, branches of the army, and law enforcement.

"It's going to affect me a little, I mean obviously I will make less money but the cuts need to happen for the fact that we are wasting too much money in the Government right now," said Chris Regsiter, who works here in downtown Columbus.

He's already seen an impact in his pay check from tax break that expired at the beginning of this year, but he's looking on the brighter side of things.

"Everyone wants this instant gratification of oh don't take my money away from me now but no one is thinking 10-15 years down the road and that's the idea of getting rid of these," Register said. 

Not everyone agrees with Register. This family says taking the jobs away can hurt a lot of people. 

"There are some cuts that need to be made but I don't think anybody wants to lose their job."
