There is a line from this article,

Not a single Republican in Congress voted for the rescue package now headed for final approval in the House and a signature from Biden, as they angrily denounced the legislation and the way in which it was assembled.

There isn't a connection "and" so 2 verbs reference the Subject "Not a single Republican" at the same time. This is a mistake, am I wrong?

Thank you for your time.

It looks OK to me. Here it is with a bit of shuffling, and a few extra words:

As they angrily denounced the legislation and the way in which it was assembled, not a single Republican in Congress voted for the rescue package [that is] now headed for [both] final approval in the House and a signature from Biden.

Does that make it any clearer?

Not a single Republican in Congress voted for the rescue package now headed for final approval in the House and a signature from Biden, as they angrily denounced the legislation and the way in which it was assembled.

I assume that the verbs you refer to are voted and headed because you used bold for them. You have parsed the sentence incorrectly. The basic structure looks like this:

Not a single Republican in Congress voted for the rescue package ... as they angrily denounced the legislation and the way in which it was assembled.

It is the rescue package that is "headed for final approval in the House and a signature from Biden".
