LOS ANGELES: James Van Der Beek is frustrated with Congress amid threats of a shutdown of the US government. The actor is upset about tension between political parties in Congress as votes to defund the nation’s new healthcare system and to raise the country’s debt ceiling loom. The star took to Twitter to express his views on Friday, frustrated with the potential outcome. “Anyone else fail to see the virtue in: “If at first you don’t succeed, obstruct until you get your way or we all shut down”? #Congress,” he wrote.  “I get that people have strong views, but at some point, governance requires compromise, no?” he posted.–BN
