I think you are mistaken in the status--the President's Budget is only a proposal, and the appendix contains the draft language:

"It includes for each agency: the proposed text of appropriations language, budget schedules for each account, new legislative proposals, explanations of the work to be performed and the funds needed, and proposed general provisions applicable to the appropriations of entire agencies or group of agencies. Information is also provided on certain activities whose outlays are not part of the budget totals."

It remains for Congress to work its will. The President cannot create a law.
