He was opposed to single-payer; there wasn't anything like obamacare's insurance mandate being considered back then. Republicans didn't propose that until the 90s. But he did preside over a large expansion of the health care system just like Obama did. And Obamacare was paid for primarily with spending cuts.

But Obama's expansion was on top of Reagan's expansion, that still puts Obama to the left of Reagan.
