I did but your still wrong. Who sets spending and budget Jake? Link.
Of course you are wrong. No one of any merit in government has challenged it the way you want and made any head way. You are entitled to your belief, yes.
Where is that link Jake?
The President's budget submission is referred to the House and Senate Budget Committeesand to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). Other committees with budgetary responsibilities submit requests and estimates to the budget committees during this time.
In March, the CBO publishes an analysis of the President's budget proposals. The CBO budget report and other publications are also posted on the CBO website. CBO computes a current-law baseline budget projection that is intended to estimate what federal spending and revenues would be in the absence of new legislation for the current fiscal year and for the coming 10 fiscal years. However, the CBO also computes a current-policy baseline, which makes assumptions about, for instance, votes on tax cut sunset provisions. The current CBO 10-year budget baseline projection grows from $3.7 trillion in 2011 to $5.7 trillion in 2021.

Executive agreement. ... However, under United States constitutional law, executive agreements are not considered treaties for the purpose of the Treaty Clause of the United States Constitution, which requires the advice and consent of two-thirds of the Senate to qualify as a treaty.

Funny Shit Stain called it a treaty! Guess he lied.
I don't need a link, DarkFury, because you have made an affirmation with no proof that Congressional approval is required.
Waiting for your evidence.
From the Congressional Research Office
Sole executive agreements rely on neither treaty nor congressional authority to provide for their legal basis. The Constitution may confer limited authority upon the President to promulgate such agreements on the basis of his foreign affairs power.34 If the President enters into an executive agreement pursuant to and dealing with an area where he has clear, exclusive constitutional authority—such as an agreement to recognize a particular foreign government for diplomatic purposes—the agreement is legally permissible regardless of Congress’s opinion on the matter.35
If, however, the President enters into an agreement and his constitutional authority over the agreement’s subject matter is unclear, a reviewing court may consider Congress’s position in determining whether the agreement is legitimate.36 If Congress has given its implicit approval to the President entering the agreement, or is silent on the matter, it is more likely that the agreement will be deemed valid. When Congress opposes the agreement and the President’s constitutional authority to enter the agreement is ambiguous, it is unclear if or when such an agreement would be given effect. The Litvinov Assignment, under which the Soviet Union purported to assign to the United States claims to American assets in Russia that had previously been nationalized by the Soviet Union, is an example of a sole executive agreement.
And the Senate weighed in against it-
Obama will bypass Senate, ratify Paris climate accord himself during trip to China: report
Obama is presumed to have the legal authority to enter into such an agreement until a conclusive decision by the federal judiciary is completed.
The Accord is legal until then.
Sorry, Depotoo, this comes from your post above.
