(CNN)Here's a remarkable stat for you: A total of zero -- yes, zero! -- Republicans in the House and Senate voted for the American Rescue Plan, the $1.9 trillion stimulus plan aimed at helping the country recover from the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (Kentucky) summed up that sentiment in a tweet posted soon after the Senate approved the legislation earlier this month:
