Re "Short take on Obamacare" (Letters, Sept. 25): The letter writer believes that not giving Obamacare a chance is mindless.

Under Obamacare, the "Unaffordable Health Care Act," projected increases in insurance rates are astronomical.

According to a forbes.com interactive map , "What Will Obamacare Cost You?" on the market for individually-purchased health insurance, here in California the individual market premium for a 27-year-old man will go from $145 to $179. For a 40-year-old man, it will go from $192 to $219.

The projected increases in New Mexico are far worse: from $70 to $172 for the 27-year-old and from $108 to $210 for the 40-year-old.

Give it a chance? To do what, bankrupt citizens?
