Hello laser106-ga and thanks for your question.

I located this chart below showing Reagan’s proposed budget and the
actual Congress outlay for each of the 8 years.

Federal Budget Outlays Proposed (Reagan) and Actual (Congress) and
Cumulative Percent Difference (billions of dollars)
Fiscal Year      Proposed      Actual   % Difference (Cumulative)
1982               695.3        745.8        7.3
1983               773.3        808.4        4.5  (12.1)
