What if government spending grew under Obama like it did under Reagan?

How would the health of the economy be different?

From the piece:

How does government spending and investment during Obama’s first term compare to Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush’s first terms? The answer is poorly. Whereas total government spending dropped in 10 out of the 16 quarters that comprised Obama’s first term, it rose in 13 out of Reagan’s first 16 quarters, and 13 out of Bush’s first 16 quarters.
