Reagan had good reasons for spending as much as he did.

 - military needed rebuilding (Vietnam had taken a heavy toll on
   equipment and he had to fix Carter's ridiculous parity mistake)
 - he decided to outspend the Soviets to bankrupt them

Of course, nobody faults FDR for spending massive amounts of money on
the New Deal.

That said, I am still waiting to hear reasons from W and the rest of the
republicans in congress for spending money like it is going out of style.
