---- — WASHINGTON — Stocks fell on Friday as investors focused on the risk that the U.S. government won’t be able to pay all its bills after hitting its borrowing limit next week.

Also on Friday, a government report showed that incomes and consumer spending grew slightly last month. The increases suggest anemic growth that is not strong enough to accelerate the economic recovery.
