You need to study the Constitution some more and quit relying on biased web sites to provide your information. Look at some Supreme Court decisions and show me where the Justices give the President a power clearly reserved for Congress.
This is one of the area's that's crystal clear in the Constitution and not open for debate. Congress has always been given control over the money as their big check and balance to the executive and judicial powers.
Xcathdra is correct that until Congress delegates this power to the President or anyone else it is completely theirs.
