"Patriotic Millionaires" Want You to Donate to Pay for Their Campaign for Higher Taxes

Professor Jacobson at Legal Insurrection spotted something when doing a little research on the former Google exec/idiot who asked Obama to raise his taxes during a town hall meeting:
It turns out the guy was a plant by a group called the Patriotic Millionaires for Fiscal Strength, which includes a number of wealthy people who are so brave they are willing to sign a letter of support for the group’s agenda only using their initials.

But another thing caught my eye in their banner.  These patriotic millionaires want you to donate to their group (circling added - see the link for the photo):

The Donate button leads to a donation page where these patriotic millionaires are happy to take your credit card billing information or allow you to pay via PayPal to support their efforts.

So how patriotic are these millionaires?

Not so patriotic that they will voluntarily pay extra taxes to the government, and not so patriotic that they will pay for their own campaign to raise other people’s taxes.
These people want to raise your taxes and want you to pay for the campaign to do it. They're definitely textbook liberals.

Isn't it the Chinese Communists who execute prisoners and then bill the family for the bullet?

These guys are asking the condemned to pay for the bullet up front. Like a firing squad pay-it-forward.
