This little guy is blue, because if President Obama gets his "health care plan" passed, doctors may no longer receive proper funding to do research on his spinal injury.
It seems that researchers at the University of Rochester Medical Center in New York have discovered that when they injected the compound Brilliant Blue G (BBG) into rats suffering spinal cord injuries, the rodents were able to walk again, albeit with a limp.
The only side effect was that the treated mice temporarily turned blue.
However, as we all know, the Obama plan for "health care reform" is likely to implement massive taxes on the rich. This will likely cause a reduction in donations to medical research centers such as the aforementioned, as those who donate to universities are usually... yes, you guessed it -- the rich!
Additionally, it will probably be deemed more fiscally responsible to put people in wheelchairs and give them pain pills than to spend money on such "extreme" treatments as the injection of a blue dye that may help those with spinal injuries.
