The claim from the former director of the Office of Management and Budget that Medicare spending fell between 2012 and 2013 is true, according to PolitiFact.

It’s especially noteworthy because the Congressional Budget Office had predicted spending would rise amid the increase in beneficiaries; it actually fell by about $5 billion.
