King Voted Against Unemployment Insurance

How do King's union supporters feel about King voting against the "Emergency Extended Unemployment Compensation Act of 2008"?

The Emergency Extended Unemployment Compensation Act would provide economic relief for Americans looking for work.
Extends Unemployment Insurance for 13 weeks nationwide and for 26 weeks in high unemployment states - those with 6% unemployment or higher.
According to the Congressional Budget Office, this would provide relief for 3.8 million Americans.
49,000 American jobs were lost in May, the fifth straight month of job losses.

The vote was 279 For, 144 Against.

King doesn't think the little people need help.
It's great to be the King when you use campaign funds to pay for your car. Everyone else has to pay for their own cars out of their own pockets.
