Austerical (austerity + hysterical)

"Austerical” (austerity + hysterical) is a term used by those who criticize austerity measures. “How do the Austerical Auks expect the private sector to create jobs in a period when private balance sheets are fragile?” was cited in print in July 2010, and the term “austerical” began to be used many times in 2011 and 2012.

It’s time to start actively pushing the ideas that the “austerical” cabal is not out to fix things but to wreck things; that they are not here to help us but to hurt us; that their actions are flagrantly un-American.

Ireland was regarded as the poster child for a booming economy. When period houses in Dublin were selling for over a million euros in 2007 it was regarded as good news, there was no reference to first time buyers left stranded as the first rung remained out of reach.
