When George Bush became president the federal deficit debt was how many times what it had been when Ronald Reagan took office?

First of all, the federal budget deficit and the national debt are two different things. The debt is the total of borrowed money owed by the federal government, and the budget deficit is the amount that is added to the debt each year due to the lack of a balanced budget.During the eight years of Ronald Reagan's presidency, the national debt rose by 1.78 trillion dollars due to eight budgets with deficits ranging from 100 billion dollars to 280 billion dollars being signed into law. That changed the size of the national debt from 960 billion dollars to 2.74 trillion dollars, an increase of 185.4%.
