Prepropose

Hi, I'm looking for a word and I can't come up with one that hits the mark. One I've heard used before is pre-propose, but I'm not even sure that's really a word. I've heard it used in this format, "Your argument pre-proposes that X = Y and that's just not true." If pre-propose is not correct, what word would you use in its stead? Thanks all. New to the forum. ;-)

@benchwarmer,
Perhaps the word you seek is presuppose?

Prepropose is not an actual word.

Presuppose: "tacitly assume at the beginning of a line of argument or course of action that something is the case."

@Ragman,
I like "prepropose." A guy can prepropose to make sure he can handle the responsibility of a real proposal. It's one of the biggest responsibility for young man.
Sort of like driving a car before buying.
