TOPEKA, Kan Kansas Governor Brownback criticized the report of 385 Kansas veterans placed on a hidden 'Wait List'.

Brownback said "The existence of these 'waiting lists' for our veterans to receive medical care is unacceptable. We have an obligation to provide these men and women who fought for our nation with timely, quality healthcare."

Brownback has joined 5 other Republican governors, sending a letter to President Obama urging him to act quickly to fix the VA problem.

Brownback declared that any veteran unable to get an appointment within 30 days should receive a federal voucher for treatment with a private provider.
