Urban Institute Think Tanks
American Enterprise Institute Think Tanks
Each site has a search engine and you can identify the organizations’ stance on your selected bill by searching for the problem that your part of the bill addresses.
They may not address your specific part of the bill but you can find out how they think the problem addressed by your bill should be resolved.
The issues identified by the think tanks can help you understand who the opposing stakeholders might be.
For example, if an issue identified in the think tank is private insurance versus universal coverage paid for by the government, you would be safe thinking that private insurance companies are stakeholders and would most likely oppose any bills that promote government-sponsored coverage.

In the mid-1960s, President Johnson saw the need for independent nonpartisan analysis of the problems facing America's cities and their residents. The President created a blue-ribbon commission of civic leaders who recommended chartering a center to do that work. In 1968, the Urban Institute became that center.
They work in all 50 states and abroad in over 28 countries, and share their research findings with policymakers, program administrators, business, academics, and the public online and through reports and scholarly books.
