US bonds get safety bid before debt ceiling battle NEW YORK: US Treasuries prices rose on Tuesday, drawing a safety bid from weaker stock prices and from a prospective battle in Washington over the government's borrowing limit, and support from large debt purchases by the Federal Reserve.   A refusal by Congress to raise the debt ceiling would raise the risk that the United States would default on its debt by the spring. Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke urged lawmakers on Monday to lift the country's borrowing ...
