According to "Health, United States,2010" Published by U.S. Department of Health And Human Services, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for Health Statistics, The District of Columbia has the highest level of active Physicians then anyother state (or in this case, political subdivision)in the U.S. at 74.9 per 10,000 civilian population. The national average is 27.7 per 10,000. For comparison Massachusettes comes in 2nd. at 43.6, and at the bottom is Idaho at 17.9 per 10,000.

You have more doctors and lawyers around rich people and half the senators are millionaires or more.
