Let's put $5 trillion in perspective: that is a 5 followed by 12 zeros.

If had borrowed $5 trillion interest free on the day that the city of Rome was founded on April 21, 753 BC , and you were trying to repay that loan by paying the bank $4 million a day, you would still have over 660 years of payments to go.

I think it is too late. More than half the people in this country get more in tax money than they pay. There is no way you will get them to vote to pay taxes.
