You'll Feel A "Pinch" When The Needle Goes In. That's Called The "Point".

Missing The Point On Health Care Reform
If health care passes, but then gets repealed, the President wins. If health care passes, and Democrat Senators don’t get reelected, the President wins. If health care passes, and the House switches to Republican, the President wins. If more Americans are without health care, the President wins.

And Barack Obama thinks that when he wins, America wins. He IS the new America. He is wrong, but don’t anyone tell him that. Not that he’s listening anyway.

This bill is as empty as the President himself. It is meaningless, at this point. Everyone hates it and not because that’s what happens when big bills get passed. Everyone hates this bill because it’s the worst sort of American politics: selling out to special interests, increasing the scope and influence of government, individual mandates, covering the wrong procedures, increasing taxes, cutting care. It’s all in there. It’s vile. And still, all these “historic” provisions are meaningless because they’re all expendable. [...]

This health care bill will be a Democratic soul-killing, empty, symbolic victory and be the perfect symbolic show for the perfect symbolic President. He can say, “I won.”

And that’s the point of this bill.
Don't worry though, when they're through draining your wallet... they'll give you a cookie and some juice. But if you need to see a doctor... unfortunately there'll be bit a of wait.
