House Majority Leader Eric Cantor suggested Sunday that congressional Republicans are open to a compromise to end the deep, undiscerning cut to the federal budget known as sequester, but said the deal would require Democrats agreeing to entitlement cuts.

The Virginia Republican's statement on "Fox News Sunday" knocks down criticism that his party wanted the cuts and is determined to keep them when Congress returns next month to negotiate a budget deal before the September 30 deadline.
