I think only one of my doctors take medicaid. Do I blame them for not wanting to be paid well for their work?? no... By time someone becomes a doctor they have paid approximately 200k+ for their schooling, had 6 years of classroom schooling, two years of medical school clinicals, and 3+ years of residency. I would say that being highly paid is in order.
I would be surprised if you polled the people who bitch that they earn to much, if you find that 1/10th of them have more than a bachelors degree.
