My response to Donna applies to your words also.

OK, see my other follow-up.

But to your point:

Yes, debt is always spent. Would you borrow money just to keep under the mattress?

As for the USA's debt, they can simply print money, or, create Federal Reserve balances which amounts to the same thing. I hope it won't come to that.

It's indeed a problem, but I believe a more prosperous, healthier nation can deal with it.
