adjective

Characterized by generous motives, extremely liberal in giving. The noun is munificence.

Yesterday was a big moment in the annals of congressional munificence. While the Senate was increasing the government's borrowing limit and growing the budget, the House was having a little Vote-a-Rama of its own, adding goodies to a $92 billion spending package to pay for Iraq and hurricane recovery.

—Dana Milbank “Welcome to Spend City”
