bucks a month. now, that means that they could get health insurance for less than their cell phone bill. >> reporter: oakland is being targeted because it's lagging behind in registering participants in obamacare. >> the there are people in oakland who have a legitimate argument, i think, when they say, look, gentrification is real in oakland now. tech companies are moving in. i can barely afford a roof over my head and food. how am i supposed to afford healthcare even if it's through obamacare? >> i am saying that if you get sick, if you get a serious accident, you want to have that financial security. >> reporter: but former chair of the state gop tom del beccaro says republicans can and he believes will come up with something better. >> i think the republicans need to come forward with a plan that actually helps people and there's a variety of ways to do that through a flat tax which i propose or they could do it through health savings accounts. >> reporter: also health and human services secretary sylvia burwell told me at the white house today that boosting enrollment numbers is not just about the president's legacy.
>> one thing it is about is reducing the number of uninsured. we agree with that. we have lower unemployment rates as a nation railroad people are getting coverage through their jobs or through the medicaid expansion. >> reporter: this nationwide challenge by the white house includes oakland and 19 over cities and the way it's going to end is that when enrollment closes on sunday, numbers will be tallied up and whichever city has the most enrollees they will win a visit by president obama. i was able to by the way ask the president about his pick for the super bowl. he is too diplomatic to pick one over the other. in washington, allen martin, kpix 5. there's a lot of snow in washington, dc thanks to a blizzard that shut down congress. there was a brief session with
