I have seen two lists that discuss the highest paid jobs.  One list is based on the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the other is from Forbes Magazine.  Both are dominated by health care professionals and show that there is clearly no need for tort reform.

1. Anesthesiologists: $197,340. (And anesthesiologists make more money in the state of Washington than in any other U.S. state)

2. Surgeons: $206,150. (Highest-paying state: Wyoming.)
