    Meaning your calculation would be wrong as well

    It appears that that site does not calculate the high income if it is over 145600 and just defaults to that figure


    Which means trying to calculate the mean from that site is impossible as it is not providing the information that would be required to do so
    I think the high was simply anything plus that. That's all I can figure out.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    No it is not all relative, when you consider that medical malpractice is about 40k+ a year. Of course, I wouldn't expect an anti-business bias to allow one to know how they actually work.

    that tends to come from rich liberals

    rich republicans don't despise others from becoming rich

    rich dems run on bashing the rich in order to become even richer through political power while doing everything possible to keep dem voters mired in poverty and dependence

    and doctors are far more than 4 times educated than the average person and certainly work much much harder.

    People in the top 5% of the population ought to be making far more

    Which does mean your mean o $85000 is most likely very wrong

    Let's not get ahead of ourselves. the skew is not going to be far past that, the high is probably just a very small sample group and couldn't be quantified, either that or the numbers may not be as stable, in other words the swing could be all over the map. But if those two factors are true then the mean would be extremely close to accurate if not dead bang on.

    Well my health insurance costs 15K a year. Could it be the insurance companies are the problem?
    Do you know why malpractice insurance is so high? It's to make up for lost revenue from investments.

    You think it's going to get cheaper with this bill? If so you are fooling yourself, congratulations we just inherited every PEC in the country. YAY! Oh happy day! This is the point the doctor is trying to make, Obamacare screwed everyone.

    EDIT-The BG is worthless for financial news, Wallstreet Report, MarketWatch, and the Wallstreet Journal would have been better.

    No I don't. I don't know if this bill is going to do any good or not. I think it would have been nice if the republicans had made their changes when they had the chance and then the democrats wouldn't have felt the need to make such huge changes. Obamas plan become reality because the republicans did nothing.
    It's too bad Nixon's healthcare plan wasn't enacted . By now we would know if it was a success or not.
    I know you guys would rather nothing be done and let things get worse but the democrats saw the need for reform and acted on it.
