44. We did a cost/benefit analysis, Mr. Beck
We determined that you would only suck up a precious resource, oxygen, and return another gas, carbon dioxide, that has far less utility. Nothing personal, it just wasn't profitable to "give" you oxygen, and as you're a Free Market Uber Alles conservative, we're sure you understand the medical profession's position. If you would like oxygen in the future, you may wish to consider how you could increase the benefit for the folks with the oxygen tank. What's it worth to you?
