House votes unanimously to restore death benefits for fallen soldiers that Obama administration stopped...

Obama should be impeached for this outrage. Stopping the death benefits to families of fallen soldiers isn't the place to play politics. 

Via The Hill:
The House voted unanimously on Wednesday to restore the financial payments the Department of Defense makes to the families of fallen U.S. soldiers.
Members easily passed the bill after the Pentagon said it can no longer make the payments because of the government shutdown. The Honoring the Families of Fallen Soldiers Act, H.J.Res. 91, was approved in a 425-0 vote.
The bipartisan bill was quickly developed and rushed to the floor this week after the Pentagon said it could no longer make “death gratuity” payments to families after October 1 because of the government shutdown.
