Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Friday said that President Barack Obama was trying to violate all of the Bill of Rights and would "start quartering soldiers in people's homes soon."

Speaking to the Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C., Cruz told the audience that the country was facing "extraordinary times."

"You look at our Constitution, you look at our Bill of Rights, this is an administration that seems bound and determined to violate every single one of our Bill or Rights," he explained.

"Tyranny!" a man in the audience shouted.

"I don't know that they've yet violated the Third Amendment, but I expect them to start quartering soldiers in people's homes soon," the Texas Republican said.

Cruz added that the president was also violating the First Amendment by forcing businesses to cover birth control -- which he referred to as "abortifacients" -- in their employees' health insurance plans.

"This is an administration that is telling Christian companies like Hobby Lobby, is telling the Little Sisters of the Poor that they must provide abortifacients or pay millions of dollars in government fines," he opined.

"Tyranny!" the audience member yelled again.
