Why cant the treasury just print more money to get us out of debt?

If we are in debt to the treasury or the treasury is broke, why cant they just print more money to get us out of debt. I have never followed politics, so I probably sound really stupid, but I would like someone to explain it to me. (As broken down as possible please. )

  1. The treasury should print money since via the constitution they are the only ones that have the legal authority to do so.m the fed creates money because in 1913 the government gave the 12 fed banks the right to which sold us up the river. We should get rid of th fed reserve and our government should print its own money and inflation would not be a concern. Inflation happens because the fed reserve prints money out of thin air, not our government.
