Here is an interesting paragraph which describes how a cut in government debt can lead to lower borrowing cost in the economy:
A decrease in the supply of government debt has forced some money fund managers and cash investors to scramble for alternatives. Higher demand for commercial paper, repurchase agreements and other short-term private debt has knocked down borrowing costs on Wall Street.

How about that? A clear crowding out (or rather, crowding in) effect between the public and the private sectors.
