The son of Focus on the Family founder Dr. James Dobson recently claimed that his father will be denied Medicare by the Internal Revenue Service.

Ryan Dobson, an author and cohost of two nationally syndicated radio programs, made these remarks on the program TruNews last week. "The person that was targeting conservative groups now can have access to every single medical record that's ever been documented on every American. That is scary," said Dobson.

"My dad … works out every single day, he eats right, he exercises, he goes to his doctors and yet under Obamacare, if he has another stroke or if he's got medical complications he is now at an age where they would deny a lot of those claims assuming that he's not productive."

Also on the program was Rick Wiles, radio broadcaster for the program "End Times." Wiles described the alleged actions of the government as dictatorial in nature.

"When you go to the hospital they're going to run a computer check on you: who you are, what your views are, who you support politically and that's going to make the decision about whether you get medical care," said Wiles.

"I don't care if they say that's conspiratorial talk, I don't care, that's what happens under a dictatorship."

The remarks of Dobson and Wiles got the attention of "Right Wing Watch," a project of the progressive organization the People for the American Way.

Brian Tashman of RWW described the "conspiracy theories" that the two indulged in during their lengthy conversation, referring to Wiles as "insane."

"During the interview, Dobson pushed the discredited claim that the Obama administration blocked military intervention during the Benghazi attack," said Tashman.

"Dobson also repeated the false allegation that Operation Fast and Furious operation was designed to push gun control legislation and cited a debunked Daily Caller story that the head of the IRS visited the White House 157 times."

On the public figure profile of Dobson on Facebook, the conservative Christian radio personality posted a link to the Right Wing Watch article detailing his statements.

"My good friends at Right Wing Watch have written about me again. I'm glad they're listening to my interviews so that they're hearing the TRUTH!!" said Dobson regarding the link he posted.

A spokesman from Dr. Dobson's Family Talk told The Christian Post that Ryan Dobson could not comment due to a Board of Directors meeting.
