all the way back to the beginning, broken down by the year and the president at that time...even though BO wasn't president in 2017, he got 'credit' for the larger increase because of the fiscal year issue. As you can see, during his tenure, the lowest increases recorded were under his watch.
According to my DIL, even if they got a $50 per month pay increase, it was taxed as usual, but their housing allowance was also DECREASED by $70-80 per month, so they always took a hit instead of a raise....and every time Derek got promoted in rank, all of his newer uniforms and the additional 'fruit salad' and his 'commission party' all had to be paid for by him personally.
Fact or fiction?
