Doctors make gobs more money than regular folks. The most I ever made was $28,000/year. I'm pretty sure most doctors make well in excess of $100,000/year which sounds pretty hoiety-toiety to me!

As soon as they limit LeBron James, Oprah, and Leanardo DiCaprio to $100k/year then we'll talk.

I put myself through 4 years college, 4 years medical school, and 4 years of residency training. Every day (almost every patient) I make life altering if not life and death decisions. How much do you think that is worth?
