Schumer has signaled that he will put up a fight against Republicans if they pursue plans to repeal Obamacare and privatize Medicare. He told the Associated Press earlier this month that Republicans will "rue the day" they try to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
"It's a political nightmare for them. They'll be like the dog that caught the bus," he said.
Last week, Schumer warned Republicans against privatizing Medicare.
"The Republicans’ ideological and visceral hatred of government could deny millions of senior citizens across the country the care they need and deserve," he said in a statement. "To our Republican colleagues considering this path, Democrats say: make our day. Your effort will fail, and this attack on our seniors will not stand."
