The Hill has reached out to Biden's campaign for comment.

In 2005, Biden voted for the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act. Critics have said the law enabled credit card companies to target people seeking bankruptcy protection. 

Biden on Thursday entered a crowded field of candidates who are competing for the Democratic Party's 2020 presidential nomination. Even before officially entering the race, Biden was considered a front-runner.
