He suggest the treasury could issue 100 year bonds for less than 3% now.

Extremely doubtful today; but they probably could have done it back in 2013 or 2014 when rates were basically zero and the stock market was in full recovery. I argued that such would have been wise policy back then. We could have borrowed at rates so cheap that we could have effectively pre-refunded all other outstanding debt and shored up SS ta boot.
