'He Died Because He Was Poor in America': This Voter Just Delivered the Truth About US Health Care to a Stunned Fox News Host

While meeting with Missouri voters on Tuesday night at a bar, Fox News host Steve Doocey appeared stunned as a voter told him the devastating reason why she voted Democratic this year.

"My husband ... passed away this summer because he didn't have health care," Miranda Crouse said. "And he died because he was poor in America, and it happens more often than people would like to believe."

"And that was the number one issue for you?" he said, stammering slightly.

"Number one," she said.

Doocey then awkwardly pivoted to reference Republican voters at the bar and throw back to his colleagues in the studio. He offered the woman no kind words of support or thoughts for her loss and appeared deeply uncomfortable discussing such a serious matter — particularly one that reflects so poorly on the Republican Party.
