Default Question regarding money

My roomate recentely brought up a question that I couldn't answer. I may be stupid, but he said with us being trillions of dollars in debt, why don't we just print out more money to get us out of debt? I was stumped. Obviously this isn't possible, or all Countries would be rich, but what answer can I give my roomate? Thanks

the more money you print, the less it is worth.

printing more money doesn't give you more assets - they are like IOU's from the government, and we already have more IOU's out there owed to other countries than we could ever pay off.

Everytime new money gets printed, the dollar gets inflated. Gold is the standard accepted throughout the world as a common means of barter. The money is only worth the gold we have to back it up. And we only have so much gold in reserves here in the US and no more. When we start to print more money, and our gold reserve remains the same, the money becomes worth less. Also when prices increase, and the value money falls, you get inflation in return.
