So your answer is, "it's a really high number."

That doesn't make it unmanageable. The debt has been a really high number for over 30 years. The interest payments are less than 6% of the budget and we are in no danger of default.
What budget?

Treasury notes aren't funding the deficit,

By definition, nothing funds a deficit. 
This is so funny I had to post it again.
Funny, because you don't understand it?
