What has Biden done in the decades he was a congressman?

He's talking about things he'll do but I then have to ask why he hasn't tried doing these things as senator?

And please don't take away from Obama's legacy by saying asinine things like "Obamacare".

    Well, I do have to agree with you that Obamacare was asinine.  It was the worst tax on America in history.

    Biden has spent his time doing so much important things as a senator and VPOTUS that I can't think of anything.  Oh!  Wait!  There's the fact that he enriched himself by selling out his influence to the highest bidder.

    I’m no fan of Biden, but I believe he has done good as Senator and Vice President.

    Being elected to the Senate at 29 & turning 30 before being sworn-in, Vice President Biden was never in the House and/or technically a Congressman. But, as you correctly referenced, he did serve in the Senate for decades. For most of the early years in the Senate, he returned home EVERY night on the train to see/put his sons to bed after the death of his 1st wife/daughter.  Which may not be relevant to him as a Senator--even though he always worked on behalf of/for the people of Delaware, says a HELL of A LOT about him as a person & Dad. As a Senator, he held great seniority over the years serving as Chair of the Judiciary & Foreign Relations Committees overseeing the nominations of Supreme Court Justices for Presidents of both parties and the entire Federal court system as well as Secretaries of State & Ambassadors among others in the diplomatic corps. 

    He was involved with a substantive volume of legislation both as Chairman and an individual Senator the most well-known of which included; the Violence against Women Act, the Crime Bill, Brady Bill and Assault Weapons Ban. Likewise, as Foreign Relations Chair, he was involved w/ not only issues of diplomacy but also military, foreign aid and war at the highest levels.  He was picked as President Obama's running mate in 08 b/c of the substance from his work as a Senator & Foreign Relations Chair and b/c he had extensive relationships with both parties as well as current and former world leaders.        

    With that said, being a supporter, I am more concerned with the current & not too distant future than his background & undeniable qualifications. Honeslty, it's a shame for him and the country that he didn't have the opportunity to run/win in 16 b/c he would have been, and still can/will be, a good POTUS.  And, I don't just mean the obviously low bar of being compared to Trump.
