If the government printed more money. It would create inflation. The price of goods would rise, it would have to increase benefits and wages inline with inflation. Government spending would rise because of inflation. Borrowers would require higher interest rates to buy bonds. Printing money would not solve the problem but create additional problems of inflation.
Printing more money is exactly what Weimar Germany did in 1922. To meet Allied reparations, they printed more money; this caused the hyper inflation of the 1920s. The hyper inflation led to the collapse of the economy.
