Thank you

The sentence means that the White House has lied about the benefits of the reform because, although they define it "tough love", it was not loving at all.
Then the two words most similar to the meaning of liar are "disingenuous" and "mendacious". Answers C and E

C and E mean false. The White House plan was not tough love but only tough.

So, it was fake to describe it as kind. Indeed, a liar.

Hope now is clear to you.
