    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. The thought of all the possible "spins" one could come up with using this one fact alone is priceless! Whats your spin?

      As we all know, the main illness of politicians is corruption; I don't know if they have specialize physicians for such condition, but rat poison should be considered

        There was one other little tid bit of information that for what ever reason jumped out at me. The unintentional deaths by poison is up by over 300%. Maybe it has been considered.....replace the congressional china with plates from China????

      Only RON PAUL can say that...

      He has never voted for an unbalanced budget.
      He has never voted to raise congressional pay.
      He has never taken a government-paid junket.
      He does not participate in the lucrative congressional pension program.
      He returns a portion of his annual congressional office budget to the U.S. treasury every year.

      And Ron Paul has willingly offered to, if elected, reduce his salary from $400k/year to just under $40k/year -- a 90% decrease.

        And like all the other politicians has a great heathcare plan paid for by the taxpayers, plus he qualifys for medicare, and a great retirement plan, again paid for by the taxpayers. The same as all of them. Maybe the doctors are there to capitalize on all that taxpayer money floating around? I wonder how many proctologist are there?
