What's fact what's fiction regarding Romney and Obama claims?

 Several times during the first presidential debate, Mitt Romney claimed President Obama had stolen $716 billion from Medicare to fund the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare.

 That claim wasn’t original with Romney. Thousands of Republican candidates have said the same thing. And, thousands of Republican candidates are wrong. Most know the facts. But in their zealous attempt to spin the truth and get senior citizen votes, they still use that $716 billion claim as fact.
 Here are the facts.  

Over a 10 year period—that’s 10 years not immediately, as stated—Medicare will lose $716 billion. But, that’s primarily because of two provisions of the new law, found to be constitutional by the Supreme Court of the United States.  http://www.walterbrasch.com
