Why did she tell them the reason? Just say “No.”
She shouldn’t have lie about this to avoid Gov’t involvement - it can be tracked almost scientifically - Gov’t interference and intrusion into personal freedom turns everyone into liars and destroys bonds that hold society together. For example, people are more charitable when there is no Gov’t involvement. The less onerous taxes are, the more taxes people actually pay. There is a very clear pattern here.
“Why did she tell them the reason? Just say No.”

does it say that she told them why she was declining? i don’t see that part...maybe I missed something..
