Historically, the president has the ability to offer budget recommendations. Congress has the ability to vote them down 538-0. Congress is mandated, by the U.S. Constitution, to pass a federal budget. The House of Representatives have passed a federal budget. The Senate has not passed a budget, and has refused to even entertain the possibility of passing a budget since Obama became president. Harry Reid leads the Congressional Party of No.
