The politicians, pundits, professors, and banksters who support austerity are murdering scum

Even Pravda gets it:

In recent years, researchers in the United States and elsewhere have repeatedly identified a correlation between suicides and unemployment or other economic distress. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported last year that suicides increased during periods of economic stress, including the Great Depression, the oil crisis of the 1970s and the double-dip recession of the 1980s. Other studies have estimated that individuals with employment difficulties are two to three times more likely to commit suicide than the population as whole.

according to World Bank, citing 64 to 100 million people destitute as a result of financial fraud.

And from the comments at Washington's blog (my bolding):

Despite the investment to save a million children’s lives from preventable poverty being just 0.7% of our gross national income, despite that every historical case of ending poverty reduces population growth rates, and despite US promises to make that investment at global summits, the 1% “leadership” in government and corporate media renege on all promises and allow this crushing torture, these excruciating and prolonged death spirals of children.

Since the 1%’s reneged promises from just 1996, the total deaths from preventable poverty is conservatively greater than from all wars, revolutions, murders, accidents, and suicides in the 20th century. In the past 20 years, and since the 1990 World Summit for Children where the promise to end poverty was again sincerely pledged, total deaths from poverty eclipse all the above categories of death in all known human history.

They're mass murderers. What else can you call them?
