You mean by printing all the money it needs? Well, that would cause severe inflation, and put us in a worse situation. No one even suggested that as a solution. You didn't answer the question in any way, you just assumed they meant by printing more money. The national debt at the moment is 9 trillion dollars. Maybe that will help explain why it is yet unpaid.
