President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski argued that the White House's tax reform proposal "prioritizes American voters, not lobbyists," in an op-ed released Monday.

"Trump's massive tax cut is a slam dunk for the American people," Lewandowski wrote in The Hill.

"President Donald J. Trump has proposed a massive tax cut for American families. The first part of the strategy to pass his bill is for Congress to introduce the Trump tax plan, then do the hard work to get it passed. The biggest problem that Congress faces right now is that they have not even started the process."

According to Lewandowski, "our spineless representatives are more worried about passing shell-game legislation favorable to the tax lobbyists on K Street, rather than tax bills that help the average Jane and Joe."

He cites White House economic adviser Gary Cohn's April blog post about Trump's tax plan, which said that "The President has focused on three things since his campaign: job creation, economic growth, and helping low and middle-income families who have been left behind by this economy."

Cohn wrote that Americans "are sick of turning their paychecks over to Washington and having no idea how their tax dollars are spent. They are frustrated by a tax code that is so complicated that they can't even do their own taxes."

Lewandowski recommends, "As Republicans should have learned from their failed healthcare reform efforts, the key to success is speed. Do it quick and don't waste time with hearings and a long, legislative process.

"When President Trump won the election, he in effect won the debate on tax cuts. The American people have spoken, and Congress needs to respond by passing the Trump tax cuts in September. No more excuses."
