Time to pay down federal debt?

I'm curious about what you, especially, as well as other readers think about this Slate article.

Even if you didn't want to use this as an opportunity for cheap money to rebuild transportation and energy infrastructure, which would literally do a world of good, could we also refinance all of our federal debt? If annual growth rate exceeds 2%, wouldn't it pay for itself?

This is definitely not my area of expertise, but what am I missing?
