Which feds make the most money?

Doctors, lawyers, and dentists top the list of the highest paid feds in government.
USA Today analyzed federal workforce data from the Office of Personnel Management. They found feds who make more than $180,000 a year account for less than one percent of the workforce.
Doctors make up eight out of 10 of those top-salaried jobs. Attorneys accounted for 6 percent, followed by dentists, with almost 3 percent, and financial institution examiners, with nearly 2 percent.
The data used do not cover the White House, the federal judiciary, most employees of the legislative branch, federal contractors or some agencies, such as the CIA and National Security Agency, said the paper.
Top ten federal agencies and occupations with employees with annualized salaries of $180,000 or more in September 2010
|Agency||Occupation||Jobs $180,000 or over|
|Veterans Health Admin. (VHA)||Medical officer (doctor)||12,708|
|NIH||Medical officer (doctor)||579|
|FDA||Medical officer (doctor)||426|
|Indian Health Service||Medical officer (doctor)||303|
|Office of the Comptroller of the Currency||Financial institution examining||238|
