How Ronald Reagan Actually Expanded the Federal Government

Under Reagan, the national debt almost tripled, from $907 billion in 1980 to $2.6 trillion in 1988.

 Under Reagan, the federal workforce increased by about 324,000 to almost 5.3 million people.

Mother Jones has put some charts together on the Reagan years here.
