I expected to see doctors and salesmen on the list. But perhaps they earn high incomes, but then spend it all on the lifestyle they're "entitled" to?

Well, since there are many more engineering degrees (about 70k bachelor's degrees, and another 30k advanced degrees) awarded in the US each year as there are medical degrees (about 18k - 20k), combined with the significantly higher debt that doctors in the US generally graduate with, I'm not all that surprised to not see doctors on the list, even without taking 'entitlement' into consideration.
