Speaker of the House, John Boehner, at a press conference this morning explains that the House of Representatives, controlled by Republicans, has passed two separate bills to replace the sequester cuts due to automatically go into effect on March 1, 2013.
Boehner goes on to say "We have moved a bill in the House twice. We should not have to move a third bill before the Senate gets off their ass and begins to do something."

Politico provides more of Boehner's comments from his media availability:
It’s time for the Senate to act,” Boehner said during a media availability after the meeting. “It’s not about the House. We’ve acted. Where’s the president’s plan to avoid the sequester? Have you seen one? I haven’t seen one. All I’ve heard is he wants to raise taxes again. Where’s the president’s plan? Where’s the Senate Democrats’ plan? I want to see it.”
The House passed the Sequester Replacement Reconciliation Act (HR. 5652) in May 2012 and the Spending Reduction Act (H.R. 6684) in December. Learn more about them both here.
In the meantime, Obama has become quite the source of entertainment to Republicans, as explained by NRO:
According to several sources who attended this morning’s GOP conference meeting, House Republicans are amused by President Obama’s theatrics about the sequester, since the White House partly engineered the policy. “There was a lot of laughter about the president traveling roadshow,” says one GOP member, who requested anonymity to speak freely about the closed-door session. “We’re all concerned about the sequester, but we just don’t understand why the president has to travel thousands of miles to campaign about this, when all he really has to do is travel 1.5 miles to visit Harry Reid and figure something out.”
