So do not read this brief article from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel if you believe that line of thinking:

Pharma company moving to Wisconsin
A Florida company aiming to bring to market an improved formulation of a widely used anesthetic is moving its headquarters and research lab to Wisconsin, it said this afternoon.
The company, NanoMedex Inc., is based on a nanotechnology method developed at the University of Florida-Gainesville for improving formulations for therapeutic agents that are poorly soluble in water.
NanoMedex recently received funding from Kegonsa Capital Partners, Fitchburg, and pulled in a $290,000 package of grants and loans from the Wisconsin Department of Commerce.
The company plans to move to Dane County Sept. 1. Its CEO is David L. Cooper, who was previously chief medical officer at Madison-based NimbleGen Systems Inc., which was acquired last year for $272.5 million by the diagnostics arm of Roche Holding AG, the Swiss pharmaceutical giant.
Clearly they’ll regret they ever did that once they find out how bad the tax climate is for businesses to be located here. But that would mean they made a bad move, which is insulting to businesses, so I shouldn’t say that, but there you go—Wisconsin is bad for business, because the second you bring one here, all of the lefty bloggers, every single one without fail, will insult your business acumen.
It’s a good thing no one ever tried to start a business here. I mean, imagine what that would do to somebody!
