Four letter word that means tells untruths.

Just to recap the story thus far. President Obama spent a great deal of time telling everyone that the penalty for not purchasing Health Insurance under Obamacare was not a tax. He said he would not violate his promise not to raise taxes on those earning less than $250k.

Well, that was then, and this is now. Now the administration has to defend Obamacare in the courts, and that means that they have to justify it by law. Their answer, that the States have no right to object to the Obamacare mandates or fees, as the Federal Government is empowered to lay and collect taxes.

So I'm working on a crossword puzzle, and does anyone have a four letter word for someone who tells untruths?

WASHINGTON — When Congress required most Americans to obtain health insurance or pay a penalty, Democrats denied that they were creating a new tax. But in court, the Obama administration and its allies now defend the requirement as an exercise of the government’s “power to lay and collect taxes.”

And that power, they say, is even more sweeping than the federal power to regulate interstate commerce.

Administration officials say the tax argument is a linchpin of their legal case in defense of the health care overhaul and its individual mandate, now being challenged in court by more than 20 states and several private organizations.
