The "Moment of Truth Project" is basically Simpson-Bowles. It's a shame that Alan Simpson won't be testifying. The Bipartisan Policy Center is on record favoring "entitlement" cuts. Mercatus is a Koch brothers front organization. La Raza and the Urban Institute can be expected to have a liberal attitude toward the budget. The Actuaries may be neutral, as in laying out the options. The Actuaries "Social Security Game" is still the best thing out there on Social Security's long term financing issues. Try it. You'll like it and probably learn from it.
