Sen. Chuck Schumer says Dems ready to work with Trump, but 'he won't be able to' KO ObamaCare

If Republicans remain unified, there isn't anything Chuck Schumer and the Democrats can do stop ObamaCare from being repealed and replaced.
  But, the key word there is "if".  And Republicans are very prone to go wobbly when the corrupt media machine starts squealing.     

Fox News reports President-elect Donald Trump is perhaps looking for a Democratic political ally in Sen. Chuck Schumer, considering the native New Yorkers’ long-time acquaintance. But the new Senate minority leader on Sunday made clear his limitations about any bipartisan efforts with the next president -- especially on ObamaCare or easing banking regulations.

Schumer told “Fox News Sunday” that he and Trump could compromise on several different issues, considering Trump’s campaign “echoed the views of Democrats.”
He suggested bipartisan support on tax reform, a comprehensive transportation bill and an infrastructure spending bill -- even within the first 100 days of the Trump administration, which begins January 20.

“I think blue-collar America voted for Donald Trump more on Democratic issues than on Republican issues,” said Schumer, who next year replaces retiring Nevada Sen. Harry Reid as the chamber’s top Senate Democrat. “We will work with him on those issues.”

As Schumer spoke Sunday on several morning talk shows, Trump tweeted: “I have always had a good relationship with Chuck Schumer. He is far smarter than Harry R and has the ability to get things done. Good news!”

However, Schumer, now among the last of the old guard Washington Democrats, made clear that Trump will get a fight if and when he tries to fulfill campaign promises to repeal ObamaCare and the Dodd-Frank banking-reform law.

“ObamaCare, he won't be able to do it,” Schumer said. “Forget about repealing or modifying Dodd-Frank.”
