"I haven't done the headcount, but I can tell you a large part is committed to saying, we have to reduce spending," said Rep. James Lankford, R-Okla., chairman of the House Republican Policy Committee. "We'd rather do it another way. But if the only way it can be done is sequestration, then it has to be done."
