The debt is already too high and can not be repaid.

With the fiat money system there never is enough currency to pay back
the debt.
If they seriously try to pay back the debt they would destroy all base
money without extinguishing the debt completely.

2,551.8 billions of Money stock (M1) 2013/10/07
3,813.6 billions Fed Res total Assets
16,669 federal debt

Do you see any problem in the numbers cited?
I do not see a problem, I see an outcome.
