Rep. Nanette Barragán (D-CA) said that Democratic candidates must win contested U.S. House races in California this November so that Democrats can repeal the GOP tax law.

Barragán made the comments during a town with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Wednesday.

“What we’re talking about here is so important. That we educate people that you walk away with facts, but then we take action, because if we just complain and do nothing about it, we’re not going to be able to change things,” Barragán said. “This administration and this Republican Congress did not have my constituents in mind when they put together this tax scam.”

“This bill is only going to take us down the line of creating greater income inequality,” Barragán said.

Barragán then asked the audience to get involved with the anti-tax law organization Tax March, which was hosting the town hall.

“Then, friends, we got to get people out to vote,” Barragán said. “You are sitting in a place wherein nearby districts you have red-to-blue seats. This is how we change, this is how we repeal this tax plan, is we got to get people elected who are going to help us do that, and they’re all nearby driving distance.”

Barragán then listed off several swing districts that Democrats are targeting in the 2018 midterm elections.

Later at the town hall, Pelosi herself admitted that Democrats would repeal the GOP tax law if Democrats retake the House in 2018.
