Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-NY, defended their decision to question former Vice President Joe Biden on his previous statements about the child-care tax credits, with the argument that the American women had a right to more information about his position.

Gillibrand doubled-down on Biden criticism, just a day after their confrontation at the second primaries debate. Af the debate, Gillibrand urged Biden to a 1981 op-ed that he wrote opposing tax credits for child care.

“When I read that op-ed, I was deeply shocked, and I was deeply offended, because the language he chose, was to use really disturbing,” she told MSNBC host Chuck Todd on Thursday.

“To say that more families of funds could have a layer, access to childcare was a sort of family to deteriorate… I think this is a very alarming prospect.”
